On Avoiding “Me-Libertarianism,” and Actually Talking to the ‘Left’

A huge hat-tip to ‘Bleeding Heart Libertarians,’ which is rapidly becoming one of my favorite blogs, for linking some articles on the ‘Moorfield Storey Blog’ (which I may have to begin reading regularly) concerning the problems with “me-libertarianism,” and the tendency of libertarians in general to communicate very badly with the political left. Though I find more often than not that I share the same goals with my “progressive” friends, our discussions reach an impasse as often as not. Perhaps, though I try for clarity, there has been a disconnect between what I think I’m saying, and what they think I’m saying.
